Cloud-based collaboration tools are becoming increasingly popular, but as Heartbleed not-so-gently reminded us recently, convenience can come at a trade-off with information security. The bug hit both Box and Dropbox, and their users’ sensitive information may have been compromised.
To the chagrin of IT managers everywhere, many employees are using the same file-sync-and-share platforms at home and work. Consumer file synchronization and sharing tools are cause for serious concerns about data breaches and loss of control over sensitive enterprise documents. The prevalence of mobile computing and the BYOD trend only compounds these security risks.
Recognizing this need for secure collaboration tools at the enterprise level, RR Donnelley has developed Roundtable,™ a cloud-based document management platform that offers unparalleled security. The platform’s built-in security includes dynamic watermarking, instant reports of exactly who is accessing which files, encryption of all data communication, code access security and communication protocols like SSL, protective software to inhibit print screen operations, and the ability to revoke rights to a document even after it has been downloaded to the user’s desktop.
RR Donnelley has a deep background in the world of financial services and deal management, which means the company knows how to protect highly confidential information. Industry-leading AT101/SOC2 Type II compliance under three AICPA Trust Principles: data security, data confidentiality and data availability. Other vendors and consumer heritage platforms may audit only their data center and only against the data security trust principle or, in the case of an SSAE16, against no trust principles.
Collaboration-first tools are great but more easily compromised. With Roundtable, security is the No. 1 priority.
